Me personally, I stay away from the mac's during thier run and target the cutt's. Should all be over soon and the mack's will have the feed bag on........
I plan to be out on the boat from now until the unfortunate ice up. I hate ice fishing due to back injuries.
"Hey, I catcha nudda crisco"
Does the spawn stop the bite? We saw lots of fish on the finder, but only had the two bites trolling right on the bottom. We saw most of the fish on the bottom, but 1 in 10 or so were only 20-30 feet down, but not interested. The breeze stopped at one point and I dropped a jig down and got a bite immediately, but that was the only other bite.
Thanks for the help. That was my first time fishing Bear Lake.
What is considered a good day at Bear Lake?
Do you drift and jig or anchor and wait for them to cruise by? Or do you search for them with the fish finder then jig for them? We couldn't decide what to do so we just kept on trolling.
thanks for any info
What a joke!
It can turn on and off very fast up there. Ihave seen days where the fish wont start to hit until after 1200 each day until dusk. Then seen it stop by 1000 each day.. really wierd.
Thanks for the compliment Brody, but there are others that know that lake very very well, and they even get spanked up there alot. I love to fish that lake. its very humbleing to me. Specially after you spend a few days at the gorge and then go up there. WHEW! very humbleing.
Jboy, Sounds to me like your headed in the right direction. If trolling isnt working, try jigging. Never know what they will want. I like to jig when the weather allows and when the wind comes up and or the jigging isnt working, then I will Troll.
Do some research on the bear lake archives and you can pick up alot of great info on what has worked for others in the past, times of year, times of day etc. I think it will slowly get better from now until the cisco run.
Live like you were Dieing.
